, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
off by getting more on all of it tonight from nbc's john yang in chicago. john, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. the signs are small, and they're far from conclusive. and we have had had false starts before. but economists are pointing to data that suggests that maybe, just maybe, we could be in for stronger economic growth this year, which has already started off with a bang. today, the stock market winning streak marked its fourth straight week. and this week, encouraging signs on jobs and higher home prices. today, the government reported that sales of new homes shot up nearly 20% in 2012, and home prices went up almost 14%. >> this is the new pricing power. >> reporter: diana olick covers real estate for cnbc. >> home building definitely improved in 2012, but nowhere near where we need it to be. we're still running half the housing starts as we would be in a normal year. >> reporter: 2012 home sales were only a third of the record set in 2005. any improvement is good news for truberry custom homes outside columbus, ohio. they haven't been this busy since th
saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigrati

the president's big moment on this issue. good morning, brianna. >> reporter: good morning, brooke and john. the president heading out west today. you may not know this, but he's had a plan, a brew print on immigration reform for almost two years now. it was seen more as a political message ahead of an election rather than a genuine push for change here. the thing is, now the administration thinks they may be able to accomplish something. >> in 2011, president obama went to the border town in el paso to push for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of imgrants. >> reporter: that went no where now in a second term, the president is trying it again. heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for employers to ensure they hire documented workers, with punishment if they don't. and the most significant and controversial part of the plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, including registering with the government, undergoing background checks, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english.

correspondent john harwood. john, my question to you, is this a reflection of the dysfunction in congress or are we looking at folks who face tough re-election battles? >> reporter: a little bit of both. history tells us 2014 will be a difficult year for democrats. that influenced harkin and jay rockefeller. saxby chambliss may have faced a primary challenge. you also can't overlook the effects of age. both rockefeller and harkin are over 70 years old. chambliss would be over 70 by the time of the 2014 election. >> is there the potential for a fundamental change in ideology in both houses? >> reporter: not a fundamental change in ideology, but you do see the senate becoming somewhat fresher. already 60 out of a hundred senators came, when barack obama came in 2005 or later, and fresh members of the senate are more impatient with the dysfunction of the place. we saw some of the effects this past week with the agreement among republicans and democrats to slightly streamline filibuster procedures. >> all right. john harwood, good to have you on with us tonight. thanks. >>> as secretary of st

't strike john mccain when he admitted his own party had a problem. there seems to be some truth talking, some movement towards compromise. are you optimistic about this? >> well, first of all, i'm glad senator mccain said what he did because we don't want the republicans to get any credit for having a moral -- they're doing this because they can read election returns, and they've got to fwet this issue at least beyond them. they have to understand there's a price to pay. do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on 100% background check? do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on high capacity magazines in they have to make that decision. on the fiscal cliff themselves, do they pay the price if they don't do something that is commonsense and a workable approach to debt? energy. all these things. we like wee winding tape to 2007 and -- george w. bush is really -- that tape speaks for itself. gornl bush did in 2007 introduce immigration reform that went basically nowhere. he made personal calls to members of his own party to get it passed. only 12 of the 49 republican senato

, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at
